  1. I've just begun my journey in the world of dirtbiking.  I grew up an avid ATV rider and have been racing ATV's for awhile.  I decided to purchase my first dirtbike in 2017 and have started the learning process!

    Distance from OEM before revalve

    Hi guys, I have just recently purchased my first dirtbike (2017 te300) and being a larger man (6'2" 270lbs) I am in need of some stiffer suspension. I am going to be talking to some local companies, but I know that they are going to suggest a new re-valve along with the stiffer springs and probably a full service. My question to you all is this, Is there a rule of thumb about how many spring rates you can go from stock without really hurting your suspension. I know going with really stiff springs will most likely put way to much pressure on the valving. Just trying to figure out the most effective/cheapest way to have a decent ride without breaking the bank. Thanks ahead for any suggestions.

    Big and tall guy looking at the 300RR

    Hey everyone, I've been researching and re-researching the 300 two stroke class of bikes and keep coming back to the 300RR. I was also looking at the KTM 300 xc-w as well as the Husqvarna 300 te. I seem to have settled in my head on the 300rr but a few things keep nagging me, and not being able to drive the distance to a dealer to really sit and compare I'm going to elude to the "experts" here. I'm a 6'2" weighing around 280 lbs fully geared up. I plan on using the BYOB option to put the heavier springs on it and a few others, but where I am nervous is just the overall shortness of the bike. Is the 300RR going to feel to small while I'm on it. The KTM and Husqvarna are a full inch higher in ride height and ground clearance. That doesn't seem insignificant. How does the cockpit feel to all you guys who are tall and big? Is there anything you would recommend doing immediately in the BYOB, such as a different seat or something. Any feedback would be great. Thanks guys!
